Fall turned into Winter over night and the kids were super happy to have a snow day. We made paper snowflakes then put them in the front window. Then we went hunting for all our snow clothes and realized that the kids have all grown a lot since last year and nothing fits anymore. We had to do some handing down of snow clothes so they could go play in the 5 inches of new snow. They had neighbor friends over to play and all the kids were in and out all day long.
Then over the weekend we went out to Pickle Butte to sled. The snow wasn't as deep there but we had fun anyways. While we were there a guy decided to drive over the ice and ended up stuck in the middle. It was interesting to watch them try to figure out how to get it back out. We had to head home for dinner and work on homework so we had to leave before they could get the vehicle out of the ice.

Our road is a big sheet of ice and Ashley has been having a blast ice skating on it.
